Our mission is to build resilient, inclusive communities of people, small homes, and shared amenities in order to connect with each other and our environment.
Interested in helping us get there?
Who we are
ACE Society (ACES) is a BC Society that was officially incorporated in December 2017. ACES was created to explore the feasibility of creating a community of people with small homes and shared amenities to connect with each other and our environment.
We are exploring this project in the City of Maple Ridge, British Columbia.
The members of ACES currently meet to work on the next steps in the creation of our wonderful “Complete Community” unofficially called “The Shire”.
Where we are now
We, the board, are currently in the planning and investigation stages and have developed a strategic plan and a working concept of the future co-housing community we plan to form.
The current vision of the “The Shire” consists of small homes (on foundations) and moveable tiny homes on small individually owned lots. The community would include many shared amenities, including light industrial/commercial and agricultural components.
In February 2018, we joined the Canadian Co-housing Network. Now, we are searching for people that want to participate in the planning and feasibility stage of our project.
Participation in ACES is separated into 3 categories: Board, Member and Subscriber.
ACE Society vision:
Multiple communities living by ACE values.
By creating our community ourselves using Sociocratic methods we want to explore ways to develop a community that is more financially resilient.
By creating our community with co-housing or pocket neighborhood principles, we want to make it easy to connect with each other.
By creating our community with a focus on lowering our carbon footprint, and nurturing our surroundings with natural amenities, we want to make it easy for our community to connect with our environment.
